Praying for the officer...particularly at this time of the year. To serve and protect...that just about says it all.

Cops can't handle suicide cases. Too reckless, overall not smart enough. Thank your favorite president Ronald Reagan for gutting mental care to hurt minorities, now it's coming back to bite you. There's a story of a suicidal person shooting a cop multiple times a week lately.
